repeated. and telling the bishops to welcome immigrants, that they'll enrich the nation and the church. and outside a small protest. he finished the day with another historic moment, canonizing the first u.s. saint on u.s. soil, a controversial franciscan priest who founded missions in california. and this often bitterly divided city, together in joy. >> i'm joined now by vice president of communications for the knights of columbus. well, today, the pope will address congress and this is the first pontiff ever to do so and he's going to do it in english as well. do you think he's going to but heads? >> he addressed the european parliament and when he addresses people, he tends to speak about
he is presenting a missionary proposal to people that should be taken to heart and he is trying to bring people a closer relationship with god. he's very happy to be here, obviously and i think he's going to say things to talk about the importance of human dignity but all of it is an invitation to us to look inside and see what we're doing. >> we know he's been a very strong advocate for climate change and dealing with the earth. do you think he's going to get his message across and how do you think that will effect the congress? >> i think he has a variety of messages and he has sort of a unify ied theory of what he's trying to present in terms of the way we interact with our environment. and what he's proposing is certain values.
the earth and have an ecological awareness and these are things that his predecessors have said. and there was a story about pope benedict being the green pope. so, he's really building on a fodiundation that has been there a long time. >> we know that he canonized this new -- i'm sorry. julio peresera. >> yes, he was canonized last night in washington d.c. and it's a really interesting story. he's somebody who left a very comfortable life behind in spain. he was tenure at a university, comes to new mexico and works as a missionary as a time and then bah baja, california and the european expansion was inevitable. and he was able to bring people
adjust to what was an inevitable caeall call olonize ation effort. and when california was taken over by the united states, the first governor of california actually went on a program of exterminating the indians. so, this sort of thing happened but it didn't happen in the missions in a way that some people think. >> the knights of the columbus, you produced a video and you're going to show that in madison square garden for mass. what would you add? >> i think that pope francis is someone who is consistent but always surprising and the consistency is he's always going to reach out and invite people to a relationship with god that's personal and important.
he really sees that as important and he's going to go from place to place bringing a message that people need accept personally and say, what is he trying to tell me and what kind of action can i take? i think he is a person who was in his mid to late 70s when elected pope. he had a very long record in the public of doing all of this missionary work, all of this out reach. i think all of that is going to continue. >> it's been an amazing trip so far and we look forward to new york and philadelphia. we appreciate it. thank you so much. turning now to politics, the feud between gop presidential candidate, donald trump and fox is back on. on twitter he writes, fox news has been treating me very unfairly and have therefore
